“End of summer weekend getaway”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

This was our first stay at this lodge and we found it very comfortable. The location is fantastic. We stayed in one of the creekside units - quiet and cozy. The downside to our visit was that we were not able to spend as much time on the property as we would have liked because we were in the area to attend a wedding. The beachside sitting area looked so enticing for a quiet read in the sun! I would put in a word for a continental breakfast, although the coffee maker and refrigerator in our room allowed us to have a simple breakfast if we chose. We enjoyed the close proximity to picturesque Gibsons. We will be back!

The Bonniebrook lodge is a quaint old building in a lovely setting. We stayed in a penthouse room which was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Others have raved about the owners, but we only met Mark...Lina was away at their Whistler property. Mark was friendly, but he did not come across as someone who loves what he is doing. We were disappointed that the restaurant was closed on the two nights we were there. This is surprising in July - peak tourist season. We also would have appreciated a breakfast offering on site or at least a microwave in the room.

Room Tip: Be aware that there are a lot of stares to climb to get to the penthouse.

The good:
Very clean, friendly hosts, comfortable nicely decorated room, excellent bed with jetted tub in the room, spectacular view.
The not so good:
No Breakfast!! This is a big one for me as anyone staying in a Lodge with such a comfortable room should have access to either room service or at the very least, a table set up in the lobby with a continental spread, muffins from a local bakery, yogurt, hard boiled eggs etc. This Lodge is home to a top notch restaurant with a fully equipped kitchen, so not serving breakfast to guests seems odd. I was told upon inquiring that there was a Tim Hortons and other coffee shops and restaurants within driving distance. This in itself will keep me from going back.
The bad:
Busy road. A few speedy drivers ruined the gorgeous setting with loud engines. It's too bad the Lodge wasn't on a quieter property. When it was quiet, you could hear the ocean and it was lovely.

Hi Donna,

Thank you for your input about your experience at The Bonniebrook Lodge and the great comments abour our facility - there is an enourmous amount of staff labour involved in maintaining the rooms, grounds, restaurant and general upkeep of this historic building.

We too, wish we could provide breakfast service and actually tryed to do so for several years, from opening the restaurant for breakfast sit down service with a chef and server at our white table cloth dining room (often serving no one to the max capacity of 14 guests) This become very cost prohibitive. Then creating breakfast baskets deliverd to rooms, which didn't alwasy meet guest diet restrictions (we ended throwing much of the food away) So, with great reluctance we decided not to continue given the circuntances we encountered over the years - if a bigger establishment with consistant attendance for breakfast service this would be a viable option.

Instead we focus our energy, time and funds on providing a great accommodation experience in an historic building on the ocean, with meandering ships, wildlife and general peace.

Sincerely,
Lina Jakobs

We returned to the Bonniebrook Lodge for the 3rd time on the weekend of July 19, 2013, where we had a family celebration for my 50th birthday. Mark and Lina go out of their way to make your weekend special with exceptional service, food and accomodations. The property is amazing with stunning views and picnic area on the beach. They are gracious hosts with wonderful staff that go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. We will definitely be back! Thank you Mark and Lina!

Spent the weekend with my bf in one of the Bonniebrook Romance Suites. So relaxing, quiet and cozy. Lush green foilage all around us, bubbling stream through the grounds, amazing Jacuzzi tub in our suite and hands down the best bed I've ever slept in! All this combined literally melted all the stress away and left us with nothing but a relaxed and cozy romantic getaway. And not to mention the fiercest bubble bath fight anyone has ever had anywhere ever! Far far more than I expected. We really did not want to leave...but we will DEFINITELY be back! Thank you BBL!

Room Tip: The Romance Suites are detached from the main lodge...very quiet and private
